  1. Set of 5 mixed sentiment gift cards

    Posted on

    Hi Craft addicts!

    Well, the sun is shining a bit and so I thought I would write about how I made these rainbow themed set of 5 small cards - all hand painted and with a variety of sentiments on the front...

    Gift Tags or small cards 2019 - Rainbow themed small 4in cards set of 5 in

    How I made this card:-

    • I first of all painted 5 different rainbow patterns on to some white card - you can use watercolour card but I used Hunkydory's Ink me card as I wanted a smooth surface!
    • I tried to keep each of the rainbow patterns so that they fitted on the front of the card.
    • Once they were all dry, I cut them out with an irregular pattern - must admit a couple of them are die cuts but I can't remember what ones they are - think they are Tattered Lace and Tonic but could be wrong.
    • I then used a variety of sentiments and after using an Anti-static bag over some black card, I stamped them on to it using Versamark ink and then heat embossed them.
    • I edged all of the backgrounds with a black alcohol marker so they stood out a bit and stuck them to the fronts of each of the cards using PVA glue.
    • I also cut the sentiments out, again using an irregular pattern and stuck each of them to the front of the card again using PVA glue.

    And there you are a set of 5 small cards that could be a gift (especially if you include some stamps) or just for your own use.

  2. Happy Birthday 2 cats with wool 7x5in card

    Posted on

    Hi Craft addicts!

    Today's card is a really simple but I think striking one and can be made very quickly! If you want to know then read on!

    GC 2019 - Birthdays - Two cats with wool HB - Black n White monochrome 7x5i

    How I made this card:-

    • I masked off the centre part of a 7"x 5"white card (so many suppliers produce them but some appear thinner than others due to the way they are produced so I usually use Hunkydory or Creative Crafting World) using some masking tape.
    • I then used part of For the Love of Masks Distress Dots stencil and using Gina K's Obsidian Black ink, coloured through it several times until I was happy with the effect and let it dry a bit.
    • Once it was, I removed the tape carefully, making sure I didn't take any of the card away with the tape.
    • I put the cat stamp from Rare Earth's A4 Best Friends Forever set onto an acrylic block, inked it all overand stamped it in the centreof the card.
    • I then used some purple watercolour paints to colour in the wool.
    • Using the Happy Birthday words from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy Stamp set,I stamped it on to some white stamping card, again using the Obsidian ink from Gina K.
    • I then cut around it and stuck it to some black card using PVA glue and then cut around that.
    • I used foam pads to attach it to the top of the card.

    And there you are, an easy card to make but if you would like to buy it then just go to my shop and type in GC00003.
